Unburying a Little

My life is a shambles. OK, I'm being a little dramatic, but my to-do list is three feet long and my desk is piled nearly three feet high. Don't believe me? Here is a picture.

Whenever my kids don't know where to put something, it goes on my desk. I generally plan one morning a week to sift through to the bottom and collect all the unpaid bills, overdue homework assignments, and library books. This is the second week in a row that I just haven't had time to do that.

And it definitely shows! Not only that, it just stresses me out, worrying about what might be lurking that I forgot about, a birthday invitation or a bill to pay. Or maybe a cookie form that I forgot to order the cookies from... now that would be a disaster!

OK, I'm being dramatic again. But it is difficult to focus on writing a post when I can hardly see the screen for the library books Princess asked me to return and the Tupperware catalogs scattered about. So tomorrow I think I'd better dedicate a little time to making the pile a bit smaller, before my screen is covered completely.

Hey! I wonder if there is any chocolate under here somewhere...?

I'll come sort through your desk for you! I've been in hardcore cleaning/organizing mode since after Christmas, and there is only so much left for me to organize at my house. Although now I do have a pantry that is empty and food that needs to go back in...

I figure after the kids grow up, I can have the perfectly organized house.

I can never get as organized as I want to be. I figure that I just have to love my children and husband and continuously try and educate them on how crazy it is to not be organized!
